The following conditions apply when borrowing archival prints:
- The borrower has to sign a Print Loan Agreement whereby the borrower pledges that the print will not projected on a platter system, that no splices will be made and that any change-over cues applied are removable. Head and tail leaders must not be cut off from any reel, and each reel must be returned heads out with base side facing the core, securely fastened with tape. We have the right to charge the borrower for replacement costs should any damage be detected upon the print’s return. The print must be screened in the correct aspect ratio and at the correct projection speed.
- The borrower must get a screening authorisation from the film’s rights holder. A copy of such an authorisation (fax or e-mail) must be provided to the archive before any print is released from our vaults. We are happy to assist in locating rights holders.
- We charge a combined handling and visual inspection fee of SEK 2 200 for feature-length films and SEK 1 100 for short films.
- All shipping costs are to be met by the borrower.
Under exceptional circumstances we may agree to archival prints being spliced when projected.
For screenings of Swedish films in Sweden, we only charge a handling fee of SEK 700 for feature-length films and SEK 350 for short films.
Prints from our collections can also be booked by external clients for screenings in one of the Film Institute theatres. For more information on the booking of the theatres, please contact email@example.com. In addition to the rental fee for the theatre, we charge the same handling fees as indicated above. Prints from the collections have to be booked with the archive at least five days prior to the screening.
